4 upcoming whatsapp updates you're going to love

Recent WhatsApp updates and privacy policy changes have caused a substantial number of its long-term users to explore other instant messaging apps, such as Telegram and Signal. Needless to say, that’s not what WhatsApp wants to see happen. To give those who have not left yet more reasons to stay, WhatsApp developers are now testing multiple new features, which should soon be released as updates for Android and iOS.

Multi-Device Login

According to WhatsApp parent company Facebook’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg, WhatsApp beta testers will soon be able to log in to WhatsApp Web or the WhatsApp Desktop application even without the WhatsApp smartphone app running on their mobile device. Most other instant messaging apps already support multi-device login, so it’s about time WhatsApp users get to enjoy this convenient feature as well.

View Once

WhatsApp has more than 2 billion users around the world, and many of them use the instant messaging app to share sensitive information. Soon, WhatsApp users will be able to send an image or video that will disappear as soon as the recipient views it, making it impossible to share it with any other people.

New Archive

Right now, the option to archive a chat in WhatsApp is not really working as most users expect it to work. When you receive a new message from someone whose chat you decided to archive, the chat will appear back on the main screen, distracting you from conversations that truly matter. The New Archive update will change this, ensuring that archive chats will always stay out of sight and out of mind.

In-App Notifications For iOS

All users of the WhatsApp iOS app can look forward to redesigned in-app notifications, which will display more information in the notification banner, including image and video thumbnails. When expanded, the notification banner will display a chat preview. It’s worth noting that the message read status won’t change when a user decides to expand the notification banner.

Emirates Airline To Invest $2 Billion On Major Upgrades

Emirates plans a huge retrofit on its fleet and an upgrade to the inflight experience.

Emirates Airline has just announced plans to improve its inflight experience for passengers. The carrier has budgeted $2 billion to refit the interiors of over 120 of its aircraft, aiming for a more modern aesthetic for cabins, along with better food choices, modern inflight entertainment options, and a significant service overhaul.

Emirates is well known for its premium service, so this overhaul is an ambitious decision, as many other airlines are trying their hardest to increase revenues and reduce costs.

“Emirates is flying against the grain and investing to deliver ever better experiences to our customers. Through the pandemic we’ve continued to launch new services and initiatives to ensure our customers travel with the assurance and ease, including digital initiatives to improve customer experiences on the ground. Now we’re rolling out a series of intensive programmes to take Emirates’ signature inflight experiences to the next level,” says Sir Tim Clark, President of Emirates Airline.

The investment aims to ensure Emirates stays on top form, with many of the upgrades scheduled to materialize quickly. For the physical refit, aircraft are scheduled to enter the Emirates Engineering Center in November. So what can passengers expect once work is complete? The most significant change will be to aircraft interiors, where flyers of all classes will immediately spot new flooring, paneling, and reupholstered seats.

As well as a physical overhaul, the airline plans to upgrade entertainment systems, adding a “Cinema in the Sky” experience, complete with a bespoke app. In addition, better meal choices will reflect changing dietary preferences, including a new vegan menu and a nod to sustainability — though there will remain a strong luxury vibe to the proceedings, as the company has entered an exclusive agreement to offer Dom Perignon vintage champagne on board, as well as delicacies such as Persian caviar.

Though many of the improvements may seem trivial, Emirates is hoping that along with a huge cabin overhaul, their overall flight experience will continue to make travel a pleasurable experience, elevating their service above the competition.
